Man United could be facing a dressing room backlash, as they offer Paul Pogba the chance to become the Premier League’s highest-paid player.
Manchester United Football Club simply need to start heading in a positive direction – in pretty much every aspect.
The Glazers have damaged this club, slowly but surely, over the last couple of decades. They have to show a willingness to change. Fans will be pleased with the Erik ten Hag news, though there’s still a long way to go.
United’s current dressing room is filled with overpaid prima donnas who simply don’t deserve the massive wages they’re on. The number one culprit? Paul Pogba.
The Reds spent a record fee to bring the Frenchman to Old Trafford. He hasn’t delivered the goods, constantly kicking up a fuss and flirting with other clubs when things aren’t going well for him on a personal level.
It looked, for all the world, like United were prepared to let Pogba walk away for free this summer. That felt like the correct decision, though United are falling back into their old habits, or so it seems…
According to The Mirror, the Reds have offered to make the star the Premier League’s highest-paid player, in a last-minute attempt to keep Pogba in Manchester.
United are understood to have offered Pogba a basic salary of £400,000-a-week, with add-ons that’ll potentially net the Frenchman £500,000-a-week when all is said and done…
Understandably, United would face a dressing room ‘mutiny’ if Pogba does indeed stay and sign that deal – particularly as they feel he could be earning twice as much as them, while constantly talking about leaving the club.
Just when you think United have turned a corner, you read a story like this. Pogba simply doesn’t deserve it. I know it’ll be painful watching such a valuable asset walk away for free, but in the long-term, this is absolutely the correct decision.
Whether Pogba accepts this money or not is irrelevant. It still shows that United are continuing to make the same silly mistakes that has them in this awful predicament.
I firmly believe Pogba is part of the problem, but I’m genuinely begging him to not sign this deal and move away. I don’t doubt he’ll flourish elsewhere but at this moment in time, he’s the exact opposite of what this club needs in that dressing room.
